KUCHING: Sarawak will not fall into the trap of constant politicking as is being done in Malaya, instead, it will focus on development.
Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) vice-president Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi said the focus of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is to bring development to the state as well as prioritise the people’s wellbeing.
He also said it is important that Sarawak remain on track to being the most developed state as well as garnering high income by the year 2030.
“As a political entity, we are not playing politics all the time because our real focus is to develop the state for the wellbeing of the people,” he said.
He was speaking at a GPS-PBB Pantai Damai dialogue session last Wednesday.
Dr Abdul Rahman, who is also Pantai Damai assemblyman, said GPS comprised of local Sarawakians who are intent on developing the state according to their own mould without being influenced by outsiders.
“Under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, we will develop the state our own way. This is because only the locals understand the needs and aspirations of the people,” he said.
In this regard, he said the people of Sarawak must continue to back GPS for it to govern the state.
“If Sarawak falls into the hands of others, it may be difficult for us to see the state continue to develop,” he explained.
